I would check the water level in the battery, also there could be a ground problem somewhere.

    do you have a power antenna? some times when you shut off the car the antenna will get stuck on the way in and not retrct all the way the motor will keep trying to retract it but if it dosnet retract all the way the motor will drain the battery or even a truck light switch can be defective and stay on draining the battery or simply just dirty terminal posts or even just low water levels in the battery use distilled water only if the levels are low

My 2001 Buick lesabre the battery will drain down

Ok, i've got 2 things to try.

1) Wait until you haven't driven the car for around 6 hours. Open the trunk and reach to the back of the seat and up. There, in between the rear speaker area is the radio/stereo amplifier. I had this same problem on my 01 Impala. The Amp stays on and drains the battery. If you haven't used the vehicle in a while, that Amp should be cold. If it is hot, then that is your parasitic draw on the battery. I bought a $12 dollar wire harness on Ebay that bypassed the amp.

2) your security light is an indicator of a security issue. On your vehicle the system can cause a draw when failed. This may be the issue as well.

My radio is locked in my car and don't know the code

If it's a Delco-Loc and you don't have the code that the previous owner programed in you will have to buy it from your local GM dealership.$50 for the last one I had to get.By unhooking your battery or even letting the battery go dead you enable the lock out of the radio.Sorry for the bad news.

Are their specific directions for changing my Buick Lesabre 2000 car battery

As you probably know, the battery is located under the rear seat, on the passenger side. So you need to remove the rear seat, disconnect ground (neg) then positive, there are vent tubes to draw fumes produced by battery out of the vehicle, make sure they are not pinched or moved away from the proper location. GM should be ashamed of how they locate the batteries in their cars, it is a real pain to get to them.

Have a 1991 buick lesabre 3800 v6, cant get to run, have had in a buick dealership replaced coil pack and icm, ran good for 2 then stopped, took back to dealership and the have been unable to find what is...

Check the ECM if it has the number 1228253 on it, this is what is wrong with it. Gm trashed all of these bad ecms. Get a 16198264 as they do not cause a cutting off problem . Get a delco ecm , aftermarket units will give trouble and may be a rebuilt 1228253 which is junk.

Battery goes dead when car sits 3-5 days 98 park ave

Obvious that something is drawing down the battery...Put a test light between the negative cable and the negative post of the battery (remove cable first) start pulling fuses till light goes out. That will tell you what system is can then begin looking for the actual problem. If all fuses pulled and light remains on ,chances are you have an internal alternator problem.
